    After watching it. I like the idea. If they promoted it better it could work well. From what I'm gathering they have a normal viewing then after the service they place the body in the window for people to see. The last viewing I was told about, I heard about it a few hours before it happened. I missed it because there's we no way to make the day line up to get there. But with this I could have went after hours.

    I think they need to add a PIN number for everyone to use so only people who that know the people can view it. VS anyone just pulling up and seeing them.

    There are a lot of people the family may not know about who still want to come pay their last respects...

    List the pin in the obituary. The idea behind the pin is to keep random people from just pulling up and seeing the body. Think of how many stoners would be like dude we need to go see a dead body! Awesome idea!

    Making them look up the Pin in the paper = too much work.

    But if they're just stoners looking for a dead body to see, they'll scan the obits anyway and have a whole page full of pin numbers to use. Which I don't understand at all still...

    Group of guys get stoned and reads the paper together.

    I'd think they would be too lazy and even if they did they wouldn't remember the number of would cut out the page number and never figure out why the code isn't working.
